Seasonal badges are also available for purchase online at purchases will be closed at midnight on the 15th until further notice.

Seasonal badges cost $80. Senior badges, for those who are over the age of 65, and junior badges, for those aged 13 to 15, cost $30.

“When the Governor’s emergency has been lifted and when additional beach guidance has been provided, a date to resume seasonal badges and to start daily badges will be announced,” Mayor Engelstad said.
